“I came up with this broccoli slaw side dish when I was trying to clear the fridge out prior to leaving for a vacation. Grabbed what I saw, stirred up a bowl, and gave it a cheeky title based on some of the cute terms my daughter uses for food. I used lite mayo and Splenda, and I'm sure it would be great with full-fat mayo and sugar. Saved the other half-can of garbanzos for tossing with a salad. I also used half fresh, half frozen broccoli (as that's what I had on hand), and it was all tasty.” - by Rock_lobster

- Bring a large pot of water to a boil; cook broccoli until bright green, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl of ice water; drain.
- Combine broccoli, garbanzo beans, carrots, raisins, and 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds in a bowl. Whisk mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper in a separate bowl. Stir dressing into broccoli mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour for flavors to blend. Garnish with about 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds.

"I was looking for a new garbanzo salad recipe that also had broccoli and stumbled upon this one. I changed ingredients up a bit - for the dressing, used 2 tbsp cider vinegar and 2 tbsp mayo with 1 ts..." See morep table sugar and a few drops of liquid stevia. I grated the carrot, and used fresh broccoli blanched in the microwave. I was not inspired to use any kind of herb or spice so I didn't doctor it at all in that way, using only salt and pepper. The non-spiced flavors of all the ingredients were good, but it was missing something. Maybe Rock_Lobster, or someone else, will try it and offer suggestions? Maybe I'll be inspired myself when I have the rest for lunch today! Thanks for the recipe to try."
